In Daspara, a village 200 km outside of Calcutta (now Kolkata), hundreds of toys are produced every day: rattles, whistles, windmills, all made by hand. The raw materials used are old strips of film, remains from the archives of Bollywood. What matters isn’t so much the pictures that are used by the workers, but rather the material and the clicking sound that the strips of film make. As the villagers follow this routine with uninterrupted monotony, a few narratives leak out from the shredded analogues of film and infuse the place with phantasmagoria.

Join us for a special screening of the film That Cloud Never Left by Yashaswini Raghunandan as we explore nuances of labour, indulging in nostalgia and navigating the mundane. 

Brought to you by OSCH @ MAP, AUD/VID is a series encouraging discovery of old and new music, film, video, sound art and media – looking at junctions of art, youth culture and audio-visual media. A step closer towards conscious consumption through listening, viewing and sharing together.

Open to people of all ages.
